Honours Program

Following successful graduation from a Bachelor of Nursing degree, students from the University of Sydney and other universities can apply to our one-year Bachelor of Nursing (Honours) program, opening the door to a future research degree.

What is Honours?

Over the course of a year, students have the opportunity to conduct an independent research project, critically reviewing an area of nursing close to their hearts.

Who is Honours for?

The program is designed for students who have successfully completed a Bachelor of Nursing degree looking to enhance their critical thinking skills. It allows students to investigate an idea that can improve the practice of nursing and the lives of patients, and opens the door to future research with a PhD or MPhil.

Supervisor information

Honours students work with a supervisor who assists them throughout their study. The supervisor helps guide the project, and assists in formulating a research question, study design, ethics submissions, collecting results and writing and publishing of work.
